VINTAGES

Vin de Constance 1993

Vin de Constance 1993

A recreation of the legendary Constantia sweet wine made in the 18th and 19th centuries.

After handpicking selected shriveled grapes, the berries are left to macerate on their skins for several days to soften, which facilitates the recovery of their golden juice with pressing.

Tasting Notes

Burnished gold. Complex honeyed nose of marmalade and spice with fresh lime, apricot and peach aromas usually found in botrytised wines. Good acid backbone, some spicy oak and high alcohol to give a fresh, lively palate feel. Warm and mouthfilling, with caramel and citrus flavours; lingering fruitiness on the mid-palate. Concentrated, dense and delicious, yet elegant.

Maturation

Drink now or cellar long-term (15-20 years)

Barrel Aging

 It is then matured in used French oak barrels and not fortified
